campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occupied. well, i'm not. it's remarkable. it is a remarkable decision to restart his campaign today. but honestly, it is also remarkable that mr. romney never really stopped campaigning in the first place. we reported yesterday on this event that mr. romney held in dayton, ohio, yesterday afternoon. it was the event that had previously been billed as a victory rally in dayton. with the president off the campaign trail entirely to deal with the crisis, the romney campaign realized it would be coarse to keep campaigning. the campaign's communications director put out a statement on monday saying that the romney campaign was going to be canceling all campaign events, "out of sensitivity to the millions of americans in the path of hurricane sandy." see, they realized like they had to seem like they were being sensitive
, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> that didn't work, so reporters went outside and asked him again. >> reporter: governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> reporter: governor, you haven't said what you would do with fema. why won't you answer any questions on it. >> no response. he has no answers. maybe that's why the guy who gave the keynote address at this convention is praising his opponent. >> the president has been great. the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> appreciating the president's leadership in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan
on the romney campaign plane that is end the near. indied, that was evident today in colorado springs with mr. and mrs. romney showing evident wear and tear, even getting a bit misty-eyed from the long flight. >> it has been quite a journey. it's coming to a close. we have three more days. >> it's no wonder emotions are running so high, particularly with new hoel o. polls out today showing romney down six in critical ohio. down two in his absolute must win florida. six, seven, eight years of campaigning and it's come down to this. romney still combing through the president's speeches trying to find anything that he might tether his message to, this time a line best served cold. >> yesterday the president said something you may have already heard, that i found troubling. spoke to an audience and said voting is the best revenge. he's asking us -- he is asking his supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for love of country. >> oh, for the love of christmas, three days to go. let's get right to our panel. with me here at democracy plaza is professor james peterson of lee high unive
understands business and i do and that's why i'll be able to -- >> i'm not sure that mr. romney realizes that this week everyone's been reminded that americans need much in a president than the ability to make money. moments ago, another man noted for his business expertise, now leader of the nation's largest city, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about ri
romney is carrying on the campaign trail in florida today. mr. romney faces the challenge of pivoting a campaign based almost entirely on criticizing the president as a failure and facing dreaded questions on his statement that he'd cut fema and return it to the states. the campaign has a clear media strategy on that front, and many others, of course. it's three weeks since mr. romney took a question from any reporter. let's get rate to our panel, as we await the president. richard wolffe is with me, the vp and executive editor of msnbc.com. and in washington, msnbc analyst eugene robinson, a pulitzer prize-winning columnist for "the washington post." richard, if i can start with you. with all due respect to romney and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond pa
way across the parking lot to get the governor on stage for his event so we can cover it. mr. romney had not mentioned the president by name over the course of the last few days in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. it was a respite of the politics. but that all came to an abrupt end when the president returned to the trail today and mr. romney was very aggressively going after him for having suggested earlier this week something that he had proposed at the beginning of the year and was rejected by republicans. the idea of a consolidation of a host of government departments and agencies under one new cabinet secretary for business. mr. romney took that and laughed at it watch. we don't need a second of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business and i do. that's how i will get this economy going. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13th. a proposal for smaller, smarter and more efficient government. i thought that's the sort of thing that republicans supported. >> well, it is certainly the
. but the desperate kitchen sink politics don't end there. mr. romney's pushing the widely debunk claim that president obama is waging a war on welfare. it's the same lame story with his comments about jeep shipping jobs overseas. that's all ugly enough. but then there's this. he's bringing out the king birther, donald trump, to make robo calls and campaign stops in key swing states and the ugliness extends beyond the walls. they have taken to the airwaves with this low piece of political slime. >> obama claimed in a muslim country that america is not a christian nation, said congress had better things to do when it reaffirmed in god we trust. better things than trusting god? like what? >> this is what a desperate campaign looks like. this is what it looked like when a candidate will go to anything that he can to win. no matter how objectionable, no matter how ugly. joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and "the daily beast." thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a su
has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of these 14 states, the states everybody's going to be watching are three. colorado, michigan, and wisconsin. here's what it looks like right now in those states. polling average in the state of colorado, it's very close. president obama ahead by less than a point. in michigan, it's president obama ahead by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ah
. that reference to unity in times of natural disaster mr. romney has used to dove tail into a plea for bipartisanship. arguing that for him to accomplish some of the goals that he has laid out in terms it of balancing the budget and trying to deal with the nation's economic challenges, it will take by part san coochings. he has been promising to reach across the aisle and giving examples in massachusetts capacity to do that making the argument without naming the president that his promise of hope and change northwesterly materialized. >> shepard: change in the works here. either the romney campaign sees an opening in three states that look like obama states or trying to get obama campaign to spend money in those states or maybe both. what is it? >> talking about three predominantly blue states won by president obama where the polls have always trended towards democrats this year. not towards mr. romney and the g.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground a
romney is mr. romney's greatest handicap. this newspaper yearns for the more tolerant conserve t.i. of ronald reagan where it meant keeping the state out of people bead rooms as well as out of their businesses. mr. romney shows no signs of wanting to revive it." now, you know romney has become right wing when you look for the compassionate conservatism of ronald reagan. they also continue. "for all his business-like intentions mr. romney has an economic plan that works only if you don't believe most of what he says. that's not a convincing pitch for chief executive. and for all his short comings mr. obama has dragged america's economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent first of foreign policy. so this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him." now, if you call the guy you're endorsing the devil you know, that's one hell of an elbow! all right. worse than the devil
not a single time during three florida rallies. instead, mr. romney expressed the need for unity. >> we come together at times like this and we want to make sure they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. now people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7. >> sandy made land fall earlier this week, mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response, something he suggested turning back to the states during a republican debate last year. attempting to clarify the candidate's position, the romney campaign released a statement yesterday reading "i believe fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters." mr.
essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. it's almost like he's in "men in black" and he thinks he has a flashy thing where he can say something and reverse himself and count on not being called for it. between fouling and the way that mitt romney has run, in a lot of ways if this is the way you can win a presidency, if he can win this way, i think it says horrible things about our policies. >> using the word lie. if you're willing to completely fool your base -- >> your own base. >> you might fool everybody. >> he's lying to the base or lying to the middle. i think one of the essential questions that will be settled on tuesday is does bs work? can you put out the
't extend to president obama. rhetoric is getting increasingly tough. mr. romney saying it lacks to agenda and amounts to stagnation. he argues that he and paul ryan will bring about bold changes. yesterday he gave a big speech that was the beginning of what constitutes a closing argument when you are still yesterday, 11 days, now 10 days away from election day. look for more attempts to shorten the rhetoric and sharpen the hits as they move closer to the election day. >> gregg: what a visual on a campaign bus heading to kissimmee. thanks. >> jamie: president obama making a campaign stop in a crucial battleground state of new hampshire. folk singer james carroll warming up the crowd gave a wide ranging speech outlining his will promise for the next five years. >> the unemployment rate is falling, manufacturing coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we've got a lot of work to do but new hampshire is country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> jamie: he won new hampshire by nine percent
and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection of rcp average which shows romney up a point. it is all so close because it doesn't mean heck of a lot in terms of differences. go to virginia where a state mr. romney is closing the gap and says president obama is up two points in the quinnepiac poll, but there is the average from "real clear politics" survey says mr. romney is leading half a point. then there is ohio. ohio the romney campaign acknowledges it will be a battle down to the very last minute and they have been trailing in some polls. quinnepiac poll has romney down five points but the "real clear politics" average is 2.4 suggesting it is very, very close. the
that these families will need. >> reporter: and with presidential politics hanging in the balance, one of mr. romney's top supporters, chris christie had nothing but praise for the federal government. >> the president has been outstanding in this, so the folks at fema have been excellent. >> reporter: later christie made it clear he isn't concerned about the storm's effect on election day. >> i don't care about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me. let the politicians who are on the ballot worry about election day. it's not my problem, i'm not dealing with it at the moment. >> reporter: local officials in his state and others are worried. in new york's nassau county, loss of power may force votes to be counted by hand, delaying the results. new jersey's ocean county is considering relocating polling places. and west virginia may deploy generators to keep lights on. back in ohio, the campaigns have been ignoring the storm, instead bickering over this new romney ad. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama? obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. and sold chrysler to ita
islands, really? would have been more subtle to send them to visit mr. romney's bank accounts. and now it is time for the last word with laurence oh d'donneo'. have a great tight. >> tonight, we are discovering that death and devastation is worse in one part of the city than we realized. and president obama will be back on the campaign trail next nour the first time since the storm. >> my bet is on you. >> it is time for a big change. >> what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >>. >> this election will have enormous commennsequence. >> it hit very hard. >> he is not part of this conversation. >> these are critical times. >> flood watters starting to recede. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. >> will this be the very image of this campaign? >> a republican and democrat coming together. >> their bet is on sinsism and my bet is on you. >> mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. >> that has to hurt. >> i was someone who ran businesses. >> mitt romney's businesses don't add up. the start of the closing argument. the sprint to the finish. if you
said that's the flag on the flag pole here next to mr. romney. ained reached over and grabbed the flag and pulled it out and the was as if electricity was running through my arm because i thought about the people who lost their lives and they walked in danger's way for learning, for something bigger than themselves, for us. i think of our men and women in uniform and their willing tons walk in harm's way for us, for freedom. [applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me
with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i have devastation on the shore, floods in the northern part of my state. if you think i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> this storm is a wakeup call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's resources aren't enough to help those without power, to help those flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like this. that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to turn it over to the states and say you're
